VG Music #2 - Doing Battle in the Big Blue Sky

Now it's time for a track from my all-time favorite video game. Yes, my absolute favorite of EVERYTHING. And (shockingly) it's not Pokemon or Sonic the Hedgehog-related.
THIS. Behold the beauty of the Skies of Arcadia second battle theme. Actually, behold the beauty of this game's soundtrack, its character design, its story... Everything about it. Yes, I love it that much (and by the way, that's where the "Arcadia" in my username comes from).
Seriously, this song ever gets old, no matter how many times I hear it in battle. I love it so much... The violins are probably what get me. I'm easily entranced by the violin, which might explain why I had to get the soundtrack to this game (its very violin-filled). On a side note, the cover of this soundtrack is equally beautiful.
The sad thing is, this game was released on the Dreamcast (and later ported to the Gamecube) a decade ago and didn't sell very well. It was critically acclaimed, though... I always wanted a sequel or prequel or spin-off, but then I realize that maybe it's better this way. I mean, it prevents a poorly done new game from tarnishing my memories of the original, I suppose.
But enough of my depressing thoughts about the unfair sales of this game. I recommend everyone to give the songs from this soundtrack a listen. And trust me, this isn't the last you've seen of Skies of Arcadia on this blog...
